Woo! Been waiting for that to happen to the cloth golems.

Too bad for Archer. Looks like the theories about Sylvia's misfortune displacement were correct.
What would YOU say if you'd won with strength and duty and honor every time when suddenly a veiled flying zero-upkeep 100% recycled army of former friends showed up to croak you with massive numbers and bonuses and skulls with little pink flowers?

Yeah..

Love the Quantum Leap reference in pannel 11. Always was my favorite show.

Help me out here. I get that the last panel on the bottom left was obviously a Quantum Leap allusion but...why? Is there any reason for putting that reference there besides "because Quantum Leap is awesome (which it was!)"? Was the same guy that played Captain Archer on Star Trek the Quantum leap actor or something?

Also I second the question as to who the eat hot cameo guy is. I feel as if that's another allusion I didn't quite get?

The gentleman in Panels 9, 10, and 12 of Page 098 is Kickstarter supporter Chris Miller, aka Firewheels. Chris donated the Mac Mini I am using on my end for the motion comic project, and it's a great machine. Thank you, Chris!


Not a popular cultural reference, rather a generous supporter who got a cameo in the comic.

Gah... must know if Ace and Cubbins got cooked... if so, then Ace might have inadvertently killed Cubbins. At least he saved the king though!

Stuffs are happening!

Curse those luckamancy repayments, I was starting to like that guy.

Also, I have to agree with Sylvia; the last panel looks like good wallpaper material. ;)

There seems to be a lack of corpses on the ground. If Wanda isn't there, then the dwagons really are eating everyone.

I officially want Sylvia to die now. Her ideas are demonstrably worse than Stanley's!

Ziggy played guitar, but Al kept walking into Sam Beckett's virtual reality spouting stats and probabilities from Ziggy, the computer. Definitely a Quantum Leap reference, not Bowie.

In a rare event, I gotta agree with Kreistor on this one. The question is... who's debt is being paid?

Sylvia's? Or maybe Parson's. Those are the only two GK units who may have racked up a luckamancy debt. Although I would have thought the luckamancy charms were repaid a while ago, so I'm, betting whatever Jojo, used to protect Sylvia used luckamancy, or perhaps luckamancy is one of fate's tools?

Or perhaps high class luckamancers can shift debt onto other sides, and GK got screwed over by a luckamancer. (Probably funded by Charlie.)

Personally my theory is Sylvia's fate armour curses everyone around her.

Shame about Archer, but I'm glad to see that Sylvia reached the Cloth Golems safely.
